Australian Made and STRONG!

This week I visited Daniel, of Fat Fruit Greenhouses, at his factory.
It was the first time we have met in the flesh, 
having only used the phone and email up to this point.

He thinks I was going to meet him and discuss
some of the finer points or our arrangement
where he provides me with a greenhouse
in return for writing a few veggie articles on his website.

Really, I was going to check the progress
on my new greenhouse and to make sure he was doing a good enough job.

This is what I saw outside his factory as I drove up.
Mmmm! Looks pretty strong.

Yep!  It's strong!

Daniel, is bursting with enthusiasm
and eagerly showed me around the factory.

He is using galvanised Australian steel
and has lots of ideas for additions and accessories for his greenhouses.

Don't forget to call in on Daniel, if you are going the 
Royal Agricultural Show in Melbourne.

You will find him (and my greenhouse)
in the City of Melbourne's
Sustainable Backyards display.

This is new to The Show this year
and has interactive and educational demonstrations
to illustrate simple ways for us to become more self-sufficient
and environmentally friendly
in our own back yards

And look what else I got of The Show's website:
